Thanks for a quick response.

What's your preference?  I could just ignore a patch I won't be able
to test myself and have you guys carry it in your tree forever, but
I do not think that is necessary for something small like this.

I think this is low impact enough that it can directly go to
'master' or even 'maint' if I were to apply to my tree.

Subject: [PATCH] convert: The native line-ending is \r\n on MinGW

If you try this:

 1. Install Git for Windows (from the msysgit project)

 2. Put

                autocrlf = false
                eol = native

    in your .gitconfig.

 3. Clone a project with

        *.txt text

    in its .gitattributes.

Then with current git, any text files checked out have LF line
endings, instead of the expected CRLF.
